It is the mission and the pledge of this office to represent the United States with determination, professionalism, and integrity. The United States Attorney's Office is responsible for representing the federal government in virtually all litigation involving the United States in the Eastern District of California. This includes all criminal prosecutions for violations of federal law, civil lawsuits by and against the government, and actions to collect judgments and restitution on behalf of victims and taxpayers. The Eastern District of California is now the eighth most populous of the nation's 94 judicial districts (and the third largest in California), encompassing six large urban areas: Sacramento, Fresno, Bakersfield, Stockton, Vallejo, and Fairfield. The district extends over 87,000 square miles and includes 34 counties reaching from the Oregon border in the north, to Bakersfield in the south, from the coastal mountains in the west, to the Nevada border in the east. With this vast area, the Eastern District of California is the tenth largest district in the country in land size, with 45 percent of the land in the district designated as federal land. 2

4 CRIMINAL DIVISION There are four units in the Criminal Division in the Sacramento office: the Appellate Unit; the White Collar Crime Unit; the Special Prosecutions Unit; and the Narcotics and Violent Crime Unit. The criminal Assistant U.S. Attorneys assigned to the Fresno branch office prosecute a wide variety of criminal cases, but are not divided into units.! APPELLATE UNIT The Appellate Unit reviews all criminal appellate filings, supervises moot courts before oral arguments in appellate cases, provides legal advice to other Assistant U.S. Attorneys, acts as liaison on appellate matters with the Appellate Section of the Criminal Division and the Solicitor General in Washington, D.C., writes briefs and argues cases in the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals, and provides training and supervision for newly hired attorneys.! WHITE COLLAR CRIME UNIT The White Collar Crime Unit is responsible for prosecuting a wide range of crimes including: health care fraud, financial institution fraud, bankruptcy fraud, securities fraud, tax fraud, money laundering and wire fraud. Environmental cases prosecuted under the Clean Water Act and other Federal environmental statutes are also handled by this unit. Prosecutors assigned to the White Collar Crime Unit also handle child exploitation cases, most of which involve defendants who have met children on the internet and then traveled, or caused the children to travel, for the purpose of having sex. The Unit also has two attorney positions dedicated to prosecuting computer hacking and intellectual property cases.! SPECIAL PROSECUTIONS UNIT The Special Prosecutions Unit handles a diverse array of criminal matters, including public corruption, the production and distribution of child pornography, civil rights violations, hate crimes, and immigration law offenses. Prosecutors in this unit also focus on the investigation and prosecution of sophisticated economic crime cases in the areas of fraud in government contracts, tax fraud, bankruptcy fraud, and investment fraud including securities offenses and various telemarketing and internet schemes. The unit also includes prosecutors who work primarily on gang related cases involving narcotics and firearms, and on marijuana cultivation cases. 4

5 Computer Crimes Section The Computer Crimes Section, a part of the Special Prosecutions Unit, investigates and prosecutes all federal computer crimes committed within the Eastern District of California, including computer intrusions, denial of service attacks, virus and worm proliferation, internet fraud, and telecommunications fraud.

CIVIL DIVISION The Civil Division consists of the Defensive Civil Litigation and Affirmative Civil Litigation.! DEFENSIVE CIVIL LITIGATION The majority of the Civil Division's AUSAs are assigned to the defensive litigation team. This team principally defends the United States in employment discrimination and harassment actions, environmental cases, medical malpractice, vehicular, and other personal injury matters brought under the Federal Tort Claims Act. General defensive litigation attorneys are also responsible for cases in a wide array of other disciplines, including the Freedom of Information Act and Privacy Act, Administrative Procedures Act, constitutional torts, Social Security, subpoenas, constitutional law, prisoners' rights, civil rights and government contracts.! AFFIRMATIVE CIVIL LITIGATION Affirmative Civil Litigation includes the Affirmative Civil Enforcement (ACE) Unit, the Asset Forfeiture Unit and the Bankruptcy/Financial Litigation Unit. Attorneys in Affirmative Civil Litigation represent the United States in a variety of cases in which the government typically is the plaintiff. 5

6 ACE Unit In ACE cases, the United States generally seeks to recover damages and penalties, or to obtain injunctive relief, against defendants who commit civil wrongs against the United States. The kinds of cases include: fraud perpetrated against the government, including health care fraud, defense procurement fraud and grant fraud; kickbacks; whistle-blower cases; actions to recover for fires wrongfully ignited on federal land; consumer product safety cases; civil rights cases, including enforcement of the Americans with Disabilities Act and Fair Housing Act; drug cases involving civil violations of the Controlled Substances Act; and actions involving misuse of Housing and Urban Development project funds. Asset Forfeiture Unit In asset forfeiture cases, the United States typically seeks to forfeit the proceeds of criminal activity and property that facilitates the commission of crimes. Forfeited assets are used to fund federal, state and local law enforcement activities and to provide restitution to victims of crime. Bankruptcy In bankruptcy cases, the office represents the interests of federal agencies with claims against entities and individuals who have filed for bankruptcy protection. Financial Litigation Unit In financial litigation cases, the government seeks to enforce the collection of debts owed to the United States through civil and criminal judgments, including restitution, fines and penalties. ADMINISTRATIVE DIVISION The Administrative Division provides a wide variety of support services to all of the United States Attorney s Office employees within the district. The scope of responsibility includes human resources management, budget administration, space management, procurement of supplies and services, information technology and facilities management. COMMUNITY PROGRAMS The United States Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of California is 6

7 committed to serving its community. This service is comprised of both official activities/collateral duty assignments and volunteer activities performed by members of the office during working and non-working hours. For example, through the Victim Witness Program the United States Attorney's Office sponsors and administers the Greater Sacramento Area Task Force on Hate Crime (formerly Sacramento Coalition on Hate Crime), a coalition dedicated to improving services to victims of hate and bias crimes and incidents. Membership is open to the public. The Law Enforcement and Community Subcommittee meets four times a year and co-sponsors a major conference on hate crimes once a year. Other committees include the Outreach Committee, Schools Committee, Victims Services Committee, Violence Prevention Committee, Newsletter Committee, and Policies and Procedures Committee. Contact Helene Tenette, Victim Witness Program Manager, at or Victim Witness Program The Victim Witness Program is responsible for providing statutory services to victims and witnesses involved, usually through no fault of their own, in the federal criminal justice system. Headed by a program manager in the Sacramento office with the assistance of a specialist in the Fresno branch office, the victim witness staff notifies victims of court events and provides a variety of court related services, including referral to victim based social services and counseling. Helene J. Tenette is the Victim Witness Coordinator and Program Manager and she may be contacted toll free at or at Law Enforcement To facilitate the formation of programs within all districts of United States Attorneys' Offices, Congress created the Law Enforcement Coordinator (LEC) position in The LEC represents the United States Attorney and the office by participating on law enforcement panels, local and statewide committees, and law enforcement task forces. The LEC maintains direct contact with the United States Attorney in the setting of priorities and the identifying of needs, activities, committees and task forces for the district s law enforcement program based on the LEC's close contact, involvement and participation with the law enforcement community. The United States Attorney s law enforcement program includes training, program development and facilitation, project assistance, funding for law enforcement related activities and programs, assistance with writing and acquiring federal grants, and when requested, serves as an ombudsman to local 7

8 law enforcement agencies. For further information please contact Jim Day, Law Enforcement Coordinator, at or Special Emphasis Programs Committee The United States Attorney's Office has a very active Special Emphasis Programs Committee, the mission of which is to identify problems, define issues, and recommend policies and solutions to management; to raise the status and fully integrate members within congressionally-designated special emphasis groups into career advancement positions throughout the United States Attorney s Office, as well as to assure the effective application of the United States Attorney s Office s non-discrimination and equal employment opportunity policy to all employees and applicants for employment who are within the special emphasis designated groups. Congressionally designated special emphasis groups include: African American/Black Affairs Program Federal Women s Program Asian/Pacific American Program Hispanic Employment Program Selective Placement for Veterans and Persons with Disabilities Program Native American Program For further information please contact Yoshinori H.T. Himel, Assistant United States Attorney at or Weed and Seed Weed and Seed is a Department of Justice community-based program. Its goal is to prevent, control and reduce violent crime, drug abuse, and gang activity in targeted high-crime neighborhoods throughout the country. The Weed and Seed strategy follows a two-pronged approach: local law enforcement agencies and prosecutors cooperate in "weeding" out criminals who engage in violent crimes and drug abuse, and "seeding" brings to the area human services encompassing prevention, intervention, treatment, and neighborhood revitalization. A community-oriented policing component bridges weeding and seeding strategies: officers obtain cooperation and information from area residents while they assist residents in obtaining information about community 8

9 revitalization and resources. There are currently four Weed and Seed sites in the Eastern District of California: two in Fresno, one in Selma, and one in Sacramento. For further information please contact Kim David Stafford, Litigation Support Specialist, at or Outside Volunteer Activities In addition to these formal programs, members of the United States Attorney's Office staff participate in a wide variety of outside volunteer activities, including: Speaking to schools and community service groups Participating in Mock Trial programs, such as the California High School Mock Trial competition Participating in Drug Awareness events EMPLOYEE BENEFITS Permanent status employees of the U.S. Attorney s Office are eligible to receive a comprehensive Federal government benefit package which includes the following:! Retirement - The Federal Employees Retirement System (FERS) is a 3-tiered plan to provide secure retirement, disability, and survivor benefits for employees and their dependents. In addition to Social Security benefits as a base, FERS offers both an annuity that grows with length of service and a tax deferred savings plan. Employees pay eighttenths of 1 percent of salary to qualify for the annuity and are fully vested after five years of service and, for disability benefits, after just 18 months. The savings plan allows employees to save up to a certain percentage of their bi-weekly salary (taking into consideration the IRS annual limits imposed for the given year) for retirement. The government contributes 1 percent of the bi-weekly salary to employees who do not contribute and will match up to another 4 percent of savings (which together can equal as much as 5 percent of the employee s biweekly salary) for employees who do contribute.! Health Insurance - Employees can enroll in health insurance coverage for themselves and their families at reasonable rates. Employees can choose between several managed fee-for-service 9

10 plans and health maintenance organization plans. There is an annual open season during which employees can change their enrollment. Unlike a growing number of private sector health benefits programs, federal employees can continue their health insurance coverage into retirement with a full government contribution. Most enrollees pay only one-fourth of the health benefit premium. The employee s share of the health insurance premium is made on a pretax basis.! Life Insurance - Most full-time and part-time employees are automatically enrolled in basic life insurance equal to their salary, rounded to the next $1,000, plus $2,000. The government pays one-third of the cost of this group term insurance. Employees do not have to prove insurability; no physical is required. Basic coverage includes double benefits for accidental death and benefits for loss of limb(s) or eyesight. Employees can also purchase optional insurance at their own expense. Optional coverage includes additional insurance on the employee's life as well as coverage for the employee's spouse and eligible children, if any. Those younger than 45 receive an additional amount of coverage at no greater cost.! Leave - Employees earn 13 days of sick leave each year. In addition to using sick leave for the employee s own illness or medical appointments, sick leave can be used to care for family members, to arrange for or attend funeral services of family members, and for absences relating to adopting a child. Federal employees also earn 13 days of annual leave during each of their first three years of federal employment. Employees earn additional annual leave as their tenure with the federal government increases, up to a maximum of 26 days per year after 15 years of service.! Holidays - Employees are entitled to 10 paid holidays each year.! Quality Worklife Programs - Employees of the U.S. Attorney s Office are eligible to receive certain no-cost medical and counseling services through the U.S. Occupational Health Service and the Employee Assistance Program. Innovative leave sharing programs allow employees to voluntarily transfer some of their annual leave to specific coworkers or to a leave bank to assist coworkers in dealing with a personal or family medical emergency. Subject to supervisory approval, the office offers compressed work schedules for support staff employees. Compressed work schedules are fixed work schedules that enable full-time employees to complete the basic 80-hour biweekly work requirement in less than 10 workdays. 10

11 ! Liability Insurance - Attorneys and supervisors are eligible to receive reimbursement for up to one-half the cost of professional liability insurance.! Training and Tuition Assistance - Through the resources of the Department of Justice, Office of Legal Education, our agency is able to offer a comprehensive range of courses to assist attorneys, paralegals, legal assistants and other support personnel in improving their skills. Courses are generally conducted at the National Advocacy Center, a state-of-the-art training facility located in Columbia, South Carolina. Subject to budget constraints, permanent employees are also eligible to receive tuition reimbursement for continuing education seminars and/or college course work which relates to their assigned duties.! Transit Subsidy - The office offers a transit subsidy program which allows most employees to be fully reimbursed for expenses incurred in utilizing public transportation for their daily commute to and from the office.! Long Term Care Insurance - The government has developed a long term care insurance program which includes benefits for all levels of care, custodial to skilled, including home care, assisted living facilities, and nursing home care. Although employees electing this benefit pay all costs, the premiums are very competitive and the coverage among the most comprehensive and flexible available at any price. Please note that although individuals serving on temporary appointments are generally not eligible for retirement, life insurance, health insurance and tuition assistance, they can receive annual and sick leave, holiday pay and transit subsidy benefits.
